Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
McCormick, a Michigan trial judge and ecumenical activist, targets a specialized audience in this work: evangelical Christians planning to visit Jerusalem and the Holy Land as religious pilgrims. He informs readers that they should look elsewhere for tourist advice, such as restaurant and hotel recommendations. He encourages readers to make a special effort to visit the churches and membership of Palestinian Christian congregations and of smaller Eastern Orthodox sects and insists that Christian visitors show proper respect to West Bank Muslims and Islamic shrines. Illustrations consist of small, modest black-and-white photos and maps. Suitable for popular browsing collections.Richard S. Watts, San Bernardino Cty. Lib., Cal.
